* The Justice Theater Project - Since 2004, The Justice Theater Project, a Raleigh-based performing arts nonprofit, has produced professional-quality theater that contributes to social justice outreach, education and advocacy. Each season focuses on a topic of social concern and takes the audience on a journey of self-reflection and discovery with opportunities for provocative dialogue and collaboration. JTP’s summer camps offer multi-cultural opportunities to children of all socio-economic groups with scholarships available for those in need. JTP provides a safe and welcoming space for artists to learn and grow and for the community to build bridges of empathy and understanding. 

* You Call This Yoga - Founded in 2007 by Howie Shareff, a former dentist, to help the physically challenged and under-served improve their lives with yoga. Their affordable, adaptable and socially-engaging classes are taught by compassionate, skilled teachers throughout the Raleigh/Wake County and Durham region. YogaFest NC is an annual all-day retreat featuring diverse yoga, vegan lunch, holistic healing practices and a variety of wellness exhibits with over 500 participants.
